New Energy delegation to India

Investment NSW invites NSW New Energy companies to participate in the New Energy delegation to India and attend India Energy Storage Week from 1-5 July 2024.


Investment NSW is organising a New Energy delegation to India in partnership with Austrade, anchored around International Energy Storage WeekExternal Link on 1-5 July 2024. The delegation will have an opportunity to interact with major Indian companies and potential partners (with combined portfolio exceeding Australia’s installed RE capacity), across Delhi and Mumbai.

The 10th edition of IESW is organised by India Energy Storage Alliance (IESA), India’s peak industry body for energy storage. IESW is an international conference and exhibition focusing on energy storage, e-mobility, charging infrastructure, green hydrogen and micro-grids in New Delhi, India. In Mumbai, the delegation will meet three major Indian companies and attend an industry networking event.

India’s energy storage will play a critical role in India’s energy transition story. India’s power generation planning studies estimate that the country will need an energy storage capacity of 73.93 gigawatt (GW) by 2031-32, with storage of 411. 4 gigawatt hours (GWh), to integrate planned renewable energy capacities. This includes 26.69GW/175.18GWh of pumped hydro storage plants (PSPs) and 47.24GW/236.22GWh of battery energy storage systems (BESS).  Energy storage technologies, with their ability to provide grid management services, could play a critical role in India’s energy transition. The government is also encouraging the growth of this sector through various policies and interventions.

A national framework for energy storage systems (ESS), recently published by the government, aims to support the development of ESS through policy and regulatory measures, financial incentives and performance-based incentives.

The government also approved a viability gap funding of INR 37.6 billion to provide financial support of the capital cost of battery energy storage system projects. Further streamlining taxation between renewable power and energy storage projects, introducing differential pricing mechanisms and developing real-time power market will improve the overall economics of energy storage projects.
